Industries & Applications

Solar energy

Compact weather stations can be used to provide crucial management information on the efficiency of solar parks

Tracking the weather

Weather stations in solar parks provide data on solar radiation, temperature, humidity, wind and rain. This data indicates a possible increase or reduction in the efficiency of the park.

Measurement parameters

MaxiMet and MetConnect weather stations monitor solar park efficiency by utilising ISO9060 standard solar radiation sensors against energy forecasts, wind speed for panel loading which helps avoid panel damage, precipitation to assist with maintenance scheduling and external temperature sensors to monitor individual panel efficiency.

Recommended wind sensors for solar farm management...

MaxiMet is an advanced compact weather station designed and manufactured by Gill Instruments using proven technology to measure meteorological and environmental parameters to international standards. 

MetConnect One ultrasonic weaather station with multi parameters

MetConnect is a compact multi-sensor professional weather station providing wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, temperature, humidity and dew point measurements, with capability to connect auxiliary sensors and combine all inputs into one serial data output.
